Kings Wood

Kings Wood


King's Wood lies between the M2 and M20 near Challock in Kent.

OS Grid Reference: TR 027 499

Directions by car: From the M2 take the A251 towards Ashford.  From the M20 take the A28 towards Canterbury and the A251 towards Faversham. The car park and entrance to King's Wood is situated off the A251 1km along the road to Wye

I went to Kings Wood with the intension of getting some shots of Bluebells, ( Hyacinthoides non-scripta ) but due to the bad winter we had they seem to be a little late this year.

Bluebells not blooming yet
The area above is usually a mass of Bluebells but as you can see they haven't bloomed yet and probably need another week of some good sunshine.

There were a few small patches of the forest that had a few Bluebells in but these were very sparse, but as I had driven for about forty minuets to get here I was determined to get at least a few shots of what I could find, with the view to hopefully getting back here next week when I hope they will be in full bloom.

If you have never visited Kings Wood, this is a great time of year to walk around the forest, its a great walk with some lovely areas, frequented by many a dog walker and cyclist alike. Car Parking is free so when you cant think were to go why not pay it a visit.
